This book is an accessible and in depth journey through the practice of sonic materialism. Cobussen guides the reader through philosophical thinking intertwining these concepts with sonic studies to create a beautiful and innovative guide to sonic materialism in everyday life. The work is unique not only in its academic argument, which is deeply convincing, but also in the style it is written: Cobussen’s writing brings a text that will engage academics beyond sonic studies, in areas of philosophy, sociology and politics to think about the sonic, in new and engaging ways.
